The head of a messianic Jewish ministry predicts that the United States and other countries could push Israel to take action against Iran's nuclear ambitions.

Jan Markell of Olive Tree Ministries predicts she will wake up one morning to headlines proclaiming Israel "has taken out most or all of those nuclear reactors."

Israel views a nuclear-armed Iran as its greatest potential threat, but the United States  is moving ahead with an agreement that Israel opposes. 

Negotiations were ongoing Monday in Vienna, with a June 30 deadline approaching for the countries to announce a deal to limit Iran's plans to build a nuclear weapon. 

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dubbed the negotiations a "bad deal," saying it would leave Iran with the ability to rapidly obtain nuclear weapons.  

In fact, Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is pushing the United States to lift sanctions immediately and announced Iran will not allow international inspectors access to nuclear plants and military bases, The Fiscal Times reported

The Weekly Standard noted Monday that a U.S. official said inspectors shouldn't be expected to gain access to Iran's military sites, since the U.S. doesn't allow access to its military bases either.

"Think about that," the conservative magazine observed. "The American official argues that Iran—a rogue regime that sponsors terror and that has lied about its nuclear program, and that is under sanctions precisely because it has proved time and again it can't be trusted—should be held to the same standards as the U.S."

"I guarantee you America won't be by her side under this current administration," Markell predicts of Israel. "And she may want to wait until 2016 to see if a Republican will get in to then be her ally."

A U.S.-born Israeli author and Middle East expert says it's apparent that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's cabinet is more conservative than he is with regard to the critical question of a Palestinian state.
